My visit to Sobha Village

Posted in Uncategorized by K P Ramachandran on February 12, 2010

It was on 25th Jan , during my visit to Guruvayur, I got an opportunity to visit Sobha Village at Panniankara near Vadakkenchery. My wife and eldest brother were there with me. We got a warm welcome  in the Sobha village as guests of Mr.P.N.C Menon,chairman of Sobha Developers  ( thanks to my friend Mr.Varghese who accompanied us ).The whole project was the brainchild of Mr.P.N.C.Menon . It was his dream to convert his own village to this dream project consisting of a state of the art school called Sobha Academy , a senior citizen home called Sobha Hermitage and Sobha medical center mainly for the residents of village. The school is above any international standard with five-star facilities and is free for the students. The students are from his own village who are picked from their home and dropped back after school hours. They are taught good etiquette in the school and are asked to keep up same standard in their home. Their homes have been modernized for this purpose. The Sobha Hermitage is for needy and helpless senior citizens. Presently this is also free charitable venture. In the academy as well as in the hermitage pure vegetarian food is served from a modern and clean kitchen installed there. The medical center provides free treatment for all inmates as well as the villagers.

This is a true and genuine example of  Corporate Social Responsibility Programme worth emulating.

    • Very true, Chandran.
      In fact after visiting the Hermitage and after seeing the facilities and their hospitality I longed to be an inmate there.
